It Has to Start Sometime

New beginnings are always a great time! I am constantly in awe of the resoluteness one needs for the closing of the door behind to walk slowly but assuredly away from one’s comfort. And then how soon it can be followed by the exhilaration and anticipation of new worlds to be found in the opening of the doors ahead.

This is where I find myself. Wanting… Maybe even needing… to enter a new unexplored world. Yet I still enjoy and find fulfillment and rest in the world in which I presently reside.

Living simultaneously in two worlds… It can’t last forever… But while it does, I will enjoy the ride.

Share Your World – 2016

Week #48



  • Do you prefer eating foods with nuts or no nuts?  
  • If someone made a movie of your life would it be a drama, a comedy, a romantic-comedy, action film, or science fiction?
  •  Who talks real sense to you?
  • Do you have a favorite board game?


Do you prefer eating foods with nuts or no nuts?  

I am not a “eating just a walnut” person… but I love peanut butter foods and the lovelies added to foods as a topping! Crunchy peanut butter and grape (or raspberry) sandwiches and veggie soup… Yummm!!! Peanut butter cookies! A Butterfinger candy bar. A Reese’s Cup! All are great!

If someone made a movie of your life would it be a drama, a comedy, a romantic-comedy, action film, or science fiction?

The morning- a sci-fi flick… It is either very robotic or so extreme no one would believe it, The afternoon- a comedy. I teach seventh grade language arts- that says it all. The evening at home- I usually hope it is an action film and I am on the courts (tennis, basketball, or pickleball) and I am kicking butt! The evening- a drama… Netflix with adventure/ or cop shows.

Who talks real sense to you?

On most days, I can find a sensible face in the mirror.

Do you have a favorite board game?

When friends are over … nothing better than a heated game of RISK or Monopoly

A Letter Home

untitled



Gently Caroline used Fredrick’s ivory jackknife to open the envelope she had just received.

After the initial shock at seeing the brigadier himself, she had breathed a sigh of relief.

My Dearest,

     Every night, I gaze at the stars and I find ours- just as I had promised.

     Your cousin Clifford stumbled upon a wounded one while on guard maneuverers. The deer stew was quite a feast for us.

     I miss your homemade bread for the world.

     We have not seen battle for several days. I am grateful, though many are restless.

     “Sooner them Yanks are dead, sooner we go home,” is the sentiment of most of the camp.

     Me, I could go a lifetime without another death.

     I am well. I hope to see you soon.

                                                                          You Are Loved,

                                                                                 Freddy

Just as Caroline rested the short note on her lap, there was another knock on the front door.

Sated

Williams-Sonoma Taste

I am not a cake person. Sure, I can eat a delicious slice of birthday cake every now and then… but lead me to the pies! Blueberry… Apple… Cherry…

Over Thanksgiving Vacation, I have been allowing my innate desires for feasting on a scrumptious slice of pie after every meal… even for a bedtime snack!

So far…

For the Thanksgiving Meal…

  • A Cinnamon Apple
  • A Tart Morello Cherry Pie with Cross-Tie Crust
  • An Old-Fashioned Pecan Pie
  • A Classic Pumpkin Pie

For the Extended Holidays…

  • Strawberry Cheesecake Pie
  • A Coconut Cream Custard Pie
  • An Apple Strudel Pie
  • A Strawberry Rhubarb Pie
  • A Georgia Peach Pie

Soon, I hope, my desires are sated….
